    Adcom GFP 555 Preamp upgrade

    Welcome to The Haven Quirkaudio! Thanks for sharing and nice stack! Any thoughts on the TC-7240 on top? I was real close to buying one but never did. Seems like a quality switcher and gets excellent reviews.

    watches anyone?

    Thanks! Green is my favorite color. Seiko Alpinist (previous model) with el cheapo metal band. Right after I got it, they changed models (white dial now) and the price shot up. :)

    WTB: remote control preamp that uses 12AU7 tubes

    That looks like a sweeeeet preamp! Im guessing it is best to use 4 identical tubes? Is using 2 of one kind of 12AU7 and 2 of another kind of 12AU7 considered acceptable or is this generally frowned upon/considered "not good for SQ". Im hoping it is considered "fine to do" and a way some...

    I measured that festie in 98 with Larson Davis 200V measurement mics. Not the best choice of mics. http://www.larsondavis.com/contentStore/mktg/LD_Docs/2541-1103_D0501.0016.pdf

    WTB: remote control preamp that uses 12AU7 tubes

    XLR outs a plus. Phono pre or no phono pre is fine. Other than that, open to anything. Thanks!

    Does Remember The Guy on AK Who Spent Almost $4k on His Pioneer SX-1980?

    That pic just reminded me that when I bought the 690i, part of the deal was that I had to take a HK cassette player and EQ as well. I know the cassette player was missing a button (I think the play button "covering"). I havent hooked them up yet and probably never will, seeing how that was...

    I found a better vid. It is a cool little receiver. Pretty much all plastic but I seem to think the translucent plastic over the tuna is "smoked"(but maybe not). I think is it over 40 years old and everything works perfectly. Sounds good too!

    Ive also have the HK 230e. Its like a mini Citation and one can view the tuna from the front or top. And the tuna knob is on the top. :cool: (even though I dont use the tuna, just looks cool and is lit up in green:cool:)

    I opened my HK 690i receiver to try to clean all the buttons/knobs. It has the most jam packed innards I have ever seen by far. Bw that and the gazillion buttons/knobs? Closed it back up immediately.
